Making Peace with Perfectionism

Is it really better to be better? You are successful in spite of your perfectionism, not because of it. Perfectionism limits your growth, diminishes your happiness, and impedes your achievements.

Join me for a clear understanding of how perfectionist's brains are designed to keep us safe but create our misery, the difference between high achievers and perfectionists, and real solutions to make peace with your perfectionism.


Impostor Syndrome:

How to deal with doubt, shame and uncertainty.


Uncertainty is a normal, helpful human emotion.  It helps us recognize incorrect diagnoses, discern when we need to do more research, and signal away from risk and towards safety.  
Uncertainty plus shame (impostor syndrome), limits our capacity, performance, voice, and success.  If 80% of high-achievers experience impostorism, what can we do to address it?  Listen in.

Charting Workshop

Imagine how you would feel leaving work with no open charts and an empty inbox. What would you do with all that time on nights and weekends?

 One of the primary drivers of burnout is charting and paperwork. I used to chart until midnight and through the weekend, and not surprisingly, I hated my job and nearly left my practice due to burnout. Now, I chart at work and log out of EMR until the next workday.

What is your Why?


What is your Why?

While the reasons why we get out of bed each morning may change, our Why does not. Our Why - our mission statement - remains. Understanding your Why will serve as an internal compass as your life evolves and a reference point for all of your actions and decisions.

Simon Sinek, author of the book Find Your Why: A Practical Guide for Finding Purpose for You and Your Team, writes that it is only when you understand your Why, you are better able to pursue the things that give you fulfillment.

Knowing your Why will serve as a compass as you take your next step. Join me for a free writing workshop to clearly define your values-driven mission statement.
